Oracle and HP are heading to court after the companies failed to reach a settlement in their ongoing spat over Itanium processors.
According to reports by Reuters, Oracle attorney Dan Wall has ruled out any chance of a settlement between the two companies.
The news comes following an urging by the case's judge to work out a settlement. Both companies will now prepare for their suit to go to trial in late May.
The case involves a year-long quarrel between the two companies over Oracles dumping of Intel's Itanium processors.
"In this one, it is not going to work out," Wall told Reuters.
Both parties urged Judge James Kleinberg to rule in their favour before the case makes it to trial in late May, but Kleinberg refused.
The Judge instead urged both parties to come to a settlement. A deal never materialised and now the case looks to proceed later this month.
HP started its suit last year after Oracle discontinued software support on servers with Intel's Itanium processors.
Oracle called the processors outdated and announced they were going to focus on Intel's x86 microprocessor family.
HP, however, stated that they signed a secret agreement with Oracle and believed that both companies would support Itanium chips for the foreseeable future.
Oracle says they had no official agreement in place and believes HP knew Oracle was planning to drop Itanium support.
HP fired back by saying Oracle purposely broke their contract to attract users to Sun servers which are owned by Oracle.
The case marks another suit for Oracle, who is currently in court with Google over patent infringement.
